Such a gorgeous location for a hotel between the lake and mountains. We stayed in a lakeshore suite no. 404 and the view of the lake was amazing. Huge suite with private balcony where you can sit and enjoy the view. Dinner in the restaurant was exquisite with beautiful fresh local ingredients. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Would love...

We stayed here for the last two nights of our honeymoon and I really did not want to leave! We were checked in by a friendly receptionist- Clare and were brought to one of the amazing executive suites. Clare rang us a few minutes later to say we should have been brought to a lakeside suite instead and did we...

We are repeat guests here and there are still many positive sides to the hotel such as the serene lake view, the old reception area décor and the rooms have remained spacious and comfortable. The food quality is still excellent but there are some food combinations that simply don’t work e.g. the beautifully cooked Sea trout got drowned a second...

This was a surprise for my birthday, and what a surprise it was. We arrived here at around 3.30, on the Sunday, and we had Harvey's famous carvery lunch, which was absolutely gorgeous. Such a large selection for each course, and all the food was at a high standard. The staff were very polite and courteous , and very efficient....

What can I say apart from we loved each and every minute here! We had our wedding at Harvey's Point on 19th April after staying (and proposing) here a few years back and both visits were fantastic. From when we first approached Harvey's about our wedding to the day itself the staff couldn't do enough. Special mention to Samantha who...

We travelled to Harveys Point for a "mini- moon" when we arrived we were upgraded to the penthouse suite. We could not believe our luck!

Great rooms. Bar food poor - choice, value and quality. Kids sausages were reheated and she could/would not eat. Breakfast great. Little to do immediately adjacent to the hotel. Nothing for children to do. Unlikely to return.

Beautiful hotel in a stunning setting . The only reason I haven't given it an 'excellent' rating is due to the fact that I was unable to get any sleep on the night I stayed due to the dog in one of the rooms near us barking on and off most of the night. It was absolutely ridiculous that the...
